Georgia law requires that all Institute employees disclose business transactions — conducted by themselves or family members — with the state or any state agency.
Public officials and employees are required to disclose all business transactions occurring during the previous calendar year. Reports for 2019 transactions are due Jan. 31.
This requirement applies to transactions by the employee or any business in which the employee, spouse, or dependent has more than a 25 percent interest. There is an exception for transactions less than $250 where the total of all transactions does not exceed $9,000 in the calendar year. If an employee has no business transactions to report, it is not necessary for that employee to file the State Business Transaction Disclosure Report.
The report is required to be filed electronically (E-File) with the Georgia Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Commission at ethics.ga.gov. Further information and additional explanation of the filing requirements can be found here.
